Indiana State Tree

State Tree

The tulip tree, also known as the tulip poplar and yellow poplar, became Indiana’s state tree in 1931. The tree usually grows to be 100 feet tall or more. The flowers, which bloom in the summer, are yellow in color and look like tulips. The tulip tree can be found throughout the state. Wood from the tree is soft white in color and can be used to make furniture, trim and cabinets.
